A blue-ribbon property located 20 kilometres north-east of Parkes in Central West NSW has sold at auction for $4,237,000.

It was sold by Geoff Rice, of Raine & Horne Parkes, for a district record.  

The 1406-acre property known as Mossburn & Pinegrove went under the hammer earlier this month.

It was as secured by Peak Hill couple Garry and Donna Kopp.

Mossburn & Pine Grove has been in the Simpson family for three generations. 

The Kopps breed Merino sheep on their property at Peak Hill, which is in the Parkes Shire, and have secured Mossburn & Pinegrove for their son. 

“The auction attracted four registered bidders including the Kopps, who competed eagerly for the property located in Parkes’s tightly held rural dress circle region near the Parkes radio telescope observatory,” Rice said. 

It was sold by the long-time owners Ian and Diane Simpson.

"It demonstrates that despite one of the worst droughts on record, quality in this region still sells.”

Rice noted water is a distinctive feature of the property boasting two springs and a stock and domestic bore serving all 21 paddocks through a trough system. 

“With highly improved pastures consisting of Lucerne and Clover, the property currently carries 900 1st X ewes alongside its cropping program.”

Other features of the property include two homesteads with up to five bedrooms.
